Hi there! Sorry, I've been away from the blog for a while. I've been having some adventures in Latin America, and its been tough to get reliable internet access to do blog updates.
I was working in the jungle in Bolivia at a refuge for jaguars and pumas. As a diabetic, I ran into a few challenges while living in the jungle with no electricity, no refrigeration, terrible & unhealthy food, no hot water, and insane mosquitos. But of course, having diabetes doesn't have to stop anyone from doing anything!
I will share some more stories later. For now, here are two videos of my experience---
The park is called "Ambue Ari", its part of the Inti Wara Yassi Community in Bolivia. The park gives a home to cats who were illegally sold in the black market as cubs, and kept as pets. These wild animals are impossible to keep as pets. This park takes cats in, and gives them their own territory in the jungle which they are free to roam with a volunteer. Since they are comfortable with humans, it is impossible to release them back into the wild. This place is the next best option for them and MUCH better then a zoo. their website-- http://www.intiwarayassi.org/
